    What are some soaps that come in wide containers tins/tubs in the 3.5"-4" diameter range . From what I've seen the ones I can spot are:

    Stirling
    Mikes Naturals
    Wickham
    Possibly B&M

    Can anyone provide measurements for the soap containers? I know the Stirling tubs come in at 3.7"ID and 4"OD and the medium shave tins(which I love for loading soap) are also 4" OD. I'm thinking about re-homing some of my soap into containers that would allow for easier loading. Does anyone have any sources for wide short containers(4"x 3/4-1") ?

    You can get free TOBS tubs from the TSD store with an order. The TSD brand tubs are large size, you can lather in the tub.

    Yup.
    I personally thought the TSD tubs were a bit too large for my liking. I get the refill size (no tub) and melt it in a small glass bowl.

    Sapone di Paolo soap tubs are, closely, the same size as the ones you mentioned in your OP, Andrew.

    I wish all soap came in a nice wide tub!

    Don't know the dimensions but the Reef Point soap I used this morning was a nice size. Similar to a Stirling container.

    Can't remember the maker but what about those Synergy containers?? They were enormous!

    I think that was HTGAM (How To Grow a Mustache, now PAA/Crown King).

    B&M does have a 4 inch container - however they have two series of soaps. The Latha series is in a smaller 3 1/2 inch container. I also use a 1 cup size Pyrex container with lid for individual pucks. It is 4 inches across and works quite well.

    Yep, that's it. Those are the biggest containers I've seen as far as diameter.

    Actually did NOT care for the original HTGAM extra wide tin. I ended up grating the soap into a smaller container, then, ended up using it in the shower. :eek:
